9 OK, I checked some of the files in /var/log/portage and it is getting
10 stranger! I have both types of log files with the new name format. 2
11 examples are attached to this mail (gzipped). Both (genkernel and
12 linux-headers) were emerged at the same day in one update of my system.
14 For me, it looks like, that it depends upon chance, which type of log
15 file will be left on my system (it overwrites the first one, which is
16 saved).
18 Any ideas?
